Forces in corridors of power behind my ordeal - Aondoakaa
Lanre Adewole, Abuja - 23.09.2009

THE Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Chief Michael Aondoakaa (SAN) has blamed some powerful government appointees for plotting to cause misunderstanding between him and President Umaru Yar’Adua.

Senior Special Assistant to the minister, Mr. Onov Tyuruugh, made the allegation in Abuja on Tuesday, citing a series of negative publicity in the media against the minister which he claimed were sponsored by some people in the corridors of power.

The enemies, Mr. Tyuruugh added, were envious of the confidence the President had in him (Aondoakaa).

Insisting on the innocence of his boss, the senior special assistant said that all the minister had done was to stand by the rule of law, adding that events in the nearest future would vindicate Aondoakaa.

He said that the minister’s alleged detractors had deliberately twisted statements made by the minister with the aim of causing mischief and misrepresenting him before the public in order to make the president to hate him.

He said: “All the minister had done was to insist that Nigeria is given the respect it deserves in the comity of nations. By insisting that our country’s laws be followed.”

The minister, he went on, had not stopped the prosecution of anyone since he assumed office, promising that the list of corruption cases pending in various courts would be published to show that the minister was committed to the fight against corruption.

The minister had on Sunday denied the allegation that he stopped 25 witnesses from going to the United Kingdom to testify against former governor of Delta State, Chief James Ibori.

Aondoakaa had in a statement on the matter, said that he was surprised to read in newspapers that his office had stalled the request from the London Metropolitan Police for the release of 25 witnesses to testify against some suspects.

According to the statement, “On the issue of 25 witnesses needed by the Metropolitan Police, nobody has brought that information to my notice.

“Immediately I saw the publication in the papers today, I contacted the Secretary of the EFCC, Mr. Emmanuel Akonmaye, who said they would be bringing whatever they have got from the Metropolitan Police on the next working day as regards the witnesses to testify in Ibori’s case.

“I have no request on my desk in relation to these witnesses,” denying too, that he went to the United Kingdom to meet with Metropolitan Police.

The minister had stated that he went to see the UK ‘s Home Secretary over allegation that he had stopped prosecution of all cases of corruption.

I am waiting for the next cabinet reshuffle. If there is no change, it will be sad.

Agaba to answer your question, No> But it is difficult to answer.

In Britain and with his records, Aondoakaa for no even see wig, not to talk of law court.

Even if they made a mistake, they could have sacked him before 2 months in office.

The people for no 'gree sef.

What a right old mess.
Nigeria's Attorney General gets his official brief from 9ja newspapers! Then runs of to the London to clear himself of his "detractors" "allegations" with the British Home Secretary! All of this to free himself from sleeping Yar Adua's "hatred" shocked. What a mess Abuja is. angry

Na so.

I am asumming here, that his "detractors" are the good Nigerian people and the Uk's Met Police. 9ja police/EFCC don't give a damn.
